button before the frenzy of the holidays takes over. We thought it appropriate in this issue to pay our due to the first responders here in SW Lake Co. for keeping us safe. Stephen Neilson’s wonderful photos focus on just a few of the folks who look after us, and we are forever grateful to all who are on the job. We are also really blessed to have so many places (and spaces) around here that help us wind down after long hours on the job. Our Experience Associate, Graham Blus, shares a few locations that are high on his list for recreation of the body and restoration of the spirit. Readers shared some of the things for which they are grateful:    From Long Grove, Renee and Tom Clark (@Properties Realtors) say “what we are most grateful for is the opportunity that the holidays bring for us to reconnect with people who have shared our  journey so far.”    From Lake Zurich, Laurie Wilhoit says: “I am grateful to all my friends and family and their generosity to help Caring Women's Connection make a difference in our community.”     Jennifer Wierzschon of Hawthorn Woods who with her husband, Rich, owns Primrose School of Long Grove, says: “I am thankful that I am able to follow my passion and help support early childhood education throughout Lake County, not just in my school.” In a similar vein, Dr. Delphine Deignan says she is “thankful for all the families that trust us with the health of their children and loved ones.” Delphine and her husband, Dr. Nick Deignan, own Deignan Family Chiropractic in Barrington. These are just a few of the comments we received, and the collective theme of gratitude is very clear. Now’s the time to take a moment, reflect on what’s really good and as the holidays unfold, share your joy.

Now in its fifth year, Wauconda Cruise Nights have proven to be a family-friendly way to spend a Tuesday evening. Even two weather-prompted reschedules didn’t dampen the enthusiasm this season, as the small-town Main Street charm provided a perfect setting with its range of restaurants, boutiques, and lots of great spots to "shop local" for the holidays.Â

NOT HOME

(CON TI N U ED)

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO CONSIDER THIS CAREER?  Family tradition. My dad was a fireman in Arlington Heights for 30 years, I’m coming up on 30 years, and my little brother’s been a fireman for 20 years in Waukegan. We’ve all three held the rank of Lieutenant. CAN YOU OFFER ANY ADVICE TO YOUNG PEOPLE CONSIDERING A CAREER AS A FIRST RESPONDER? Be aware of educational requirements. Some Departments require certain college credits; College of Lake County has a good “tech prep” program around fire service. For younger people, many Departments here have an Explorer program for high schoolers, who visit the firehouse twice monthly and are introduced to basic operations of a firefighter, and ride along with some emergency calls. Two of our current Firefighters were Explorers as teens. WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL FOR? My friends, my family, and life itself; doing this for 30 years and retiring healthy and by choice. CONTINUED >

ROB LOYAL

LIEUTENANT, LAKE ZURICH FIRE DEPT 18

SW Lake Lifestyle | November 2018


HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN LAW ENFORCEMENT? Just over 16 years. WHO WAS YOUR HERO GROWING UP? My mother; she has always kept a positive attitude on life and has been my rock. WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO CONSIDER THIS CAREER?  As a child, I always looked up to police officers.  Making a difference in someone’s life was a big factor. CAN YOU SHARE AN EXPERIENCE THAT SHOWS THE SATISFACTION YOU GET FROM THE JOB? There’s a young gentleman who had a brain injury a few years ago. He rides his bike around the area where I work. When he stops to take a break, people think he’s drunk or crazy, as he doesn’t speak very well and can’t move once he becomes tired. When I get there, he smiles because he knows me, and that I’ll help him. Because others don’t know of his injury, I’m in a unique position to help. I’ve driven him back to his house multiple times.

NOT HOME

(CON TI N U ED)

WHY CHOOSE THIS CAREER? I was in the Marines, and liked the military-style structure. Soon after moving here I saw an ad and started working towards becoming a Firefighter… now I’m almost 25 years in, and my son is a certified Firefighter/EMTB, in paramedic school at Northwestern. SHARE A HIGHLIGHT FROM YOUR CAREER? So many things stand out. There was a lady one December experiencing tough times who decided she didn’t want to live any more. She wandered off into the snow and her tracks led off the path into an ravine of trees and brush. Using a thermal imaging camera, we found her curled up in the snow, and were able to get her help.

SW Lake Lifestyle | November 2018

WHAT’S YOUR PHILOSOPHY REGARDING PUBLIC SERVICE? It’s like the old saying: If you do what you love, you never work a day in your life. It’s giving back to people, and I’ve absolutely loved it. You won’t look back later and feel you missed making a difference.

SHOP LOCAL ON BLACK FRIDAY SUPPORTING AREA RETAILERS STRENGTHENS THE COMMUNITY

ON THE DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING (BLACK FRIDAY) NEWS REPORTS ARE FILLED WITH STORIES ABOUT CRAZED SHOPPERS COMPETING FOR DEALS. We’ve all seen the pictures, read the stories under screaming headlines and seen the broadcasts. A few years ago another shopping phenomenon started: Cyber Monday is when online retailers offer deals that shoppers find enticing. Cyber Monday this year is November 26. All that commerce is great for the national economy, but lost in the hype is the impact on locally owned businesses. So many enterprises here in SW Lake Co. are locally owned, mom-and-pop shops offering a remarkable variety of goods, services and values. This year when your holiday shopping kicks into high gear, please consider the merchants featured all year in the pages of SW Lake Lifestyle. When we Shop Local we strengthen the local economy while supporting our neighbors, their employees and their families.
